Northern Iowa is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a home winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m leaning towards Northern Iowa but I don’t really love this game. The thing about Northern Iowa is that if nothing else, they’re the more trustworthy and consistent offense of the two in this game and the only real struggle we’ve seen of the Panthers this season on the road have been against the better teams in the conference, which Evansville is not. Not a game I’m rushing to bet at this number, but I’d stick with Northern Iowa here.
